YIN/YANG YOGA with Nicola Gill
Yin Yang Flow combines the 2 styles of yoga into one practice, to help you achieve a healthy balanced lifestyle. The 2 qualities yin and yang are present in everything, we cannot have one without the other, so for a balanced yoga practice we need to include both aspects.
We cover breathing exercises (Pranayama), yin postures to focus and still the mind and body. Then move into yang postures, finishing with a blissful relaxation and closing meditation.
$14 drop in or $120 (10 card pass valid for 6 months)

GENTLE FLOW with Maya Lefebvre

YIN YOGA with Kimberley Bortnick
Yin yoga works on the “Yin” or the relatively stiff connective tissue in the body, (tendons, ligament, fascia). This tissue requires time to release/open and responds best to slow, steady stress. Therefore, a Yin class consists of longer held, passive floor poses that involve the lower (Yin) part of the body; hips, sacrum, pelvis, inner thighs and lower spine. Props are used to support/encourage stillness.
Different Yin poses stimulate and remove blockages in the myofacial meridians in the body, balancing internal organs and systems. This all practiced to lovely, calming music.
$13 if paid in advance, $15 drop-in. Cash only
Please note last class for 2019 will be 22nd December and no class on 26th January due to Evolve Festival.
